Fee for Incidentals

Your clinical care is our top priority while you are in our hospital however the quality of your stay is also important to us and an integral part of our commitment to you as our patient. The following fees apply in some of our hospitals.

Overnight Patients:

As a part of your overnight admission to our hospital, you may be charged a 'Fee for Incidentals' of $25.

This is a standard fee and relates to the cost of providing you and your visitors with access to Foxtel/Austar, high speed wireless internet at the hospital and an internet business centre (*) for the entire length of your stay.

Your health fund (**) may cover a component of these value-added services and in these circumstances the fee for incidentals will not be added to your hospital invoice.
